Dougie: Zis iz a very interezting simulation game. Lizten, you wargaming fanaticz out zere. Ze scenario is WW II, ze location, the North Atlantic. You and your partner play ze parts of ze commanders in the British and German Naval forces. Your mission? to destroy ze enemy convoy and sink their flagship - zats all.

Ze fleet under your command haz ze full complement of Aircraft carriers, Battleships, Cruisers, Destroyers and Submarines. Occasionally, you have ze benefit of ze air reconaissanze too.

Ze game starts with ze British Player being given ze option to review his fleets' status or begin moving it around. He iz allowed to set the speed and course of each vessel independently, so he haz full control over zair movements. Power, huh!

Convoy iz a very interezting game if you like ze wars, but it's written in ze Basic vhich makes it very slow and difficult to play. At two and a half poundz, it's not a winner, but itz very good practice for vinning ze wars and ruling ze vurld ... Ha, Ha, Ha!! 6/10

Rick: For a budget game it ain't bad, but it's not for the uncommitted wargamer or non-strategist. Shame you have to reload after each game. 7/10

Ross: A well-produced version of battleships with extra graphics and better computer control. There's nothing wonderful to make saying "Get yourself a Convoy" worthwhile. 4/10
